Persona and Facebook

From the blog “You Are Not So Smart,” promoting the book of the same name, this post is called “The Illusion of Asymmetric Insight.” Author David McRaney posits self-delusional misconceptions and the truth behind those misconceptions. One example is: “I celebrate diversity and respect others’ points of view.” The “truth” part of the post contains a story about a socio-psychological study of two groups of boys and how their cultures naturally evolve, or devolve, and discussion of persona as relates to current culture, including how that plays out on social media like Facebook. “You are unaware of how unaware you are.”
